Just arrived back from two great weeks in The Blu Ocean resort !
Can't fault this hotel. The room was spotless , the bed huge and comfortable with huge toilet and deprecate shower/ wet room bigger than my home bathroom ! There is a well a stocked fridge with beers and soft drinks and snacks ( nuts crisps and biscuits ) which doesn't sound much but when you arrive at midnight , thirsty and hungry and no clue of your surroundings it was a welcome sight . There is a charge but not over priced.
The staff could not be more pleasant and helpful if they tried ! The breakfast is wide and varied and a delightfull young lady will make you a fresh omelette or however you would like your eggs done . Lots of fresh fruits,cereals toast and best of all , traditional Thai foods ! Can't comment on evening meals as we ate out every night so we could sample different restaurants !
Some areas of the hotel could do with a fresh coat of paint but that's being picky ! The pool area is small but more than adequate for a cooling dip and the bar area Fresh and staff attentive.
The hotel is situated at the bottom end of " walking Rd " but all busy areas including Bangla rd. and the excellent Jungceylon ( a huge mall with many many shops and good restaurants and bars of a nicer calibre than the chaotic but fun Bangla rd ) are all within 15 mins walk ! The hotel is also much closer to the beach ! 3 mins walk and you are at the beginning of Patong beach .
I give Blue Ocean resort a 5 because the location ,the staff and the bedrooms far outshone some tired paintwork !
Would I go back ? Definitely !
